From: Parks and Recreation
Who said it?: Donna Meagle and Tom Haverford
The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation. While the show got off to a slow start, it soon gained a huge following thanks to some sharp witty humor and great characters. The show follows the Parks and Recreation department of the town of Pawnee and the misadventures they have.
The quote comes from the 4th episode of the 4th season, Pawnee Rangers. In the episode, Tom Haverford (played by Aziz Ansari) and Donna Meagle (played by Retta) reveal that, once a year, they set aside one whole day where they can splurge on themselves, hence, the quote. This actually started to be something you would see each season.
Geek wisdom: The world can be a hard place to live in. So it’s actually smart to set aside some time to pamper yourself and just do the things that make you happy to unwind.
